Sambari clans


Recommended Posts

Has anyone done any public work defining the Sambari tribe clans?

I note that there is a Sartar clan map in Well of Daliath, that shows the following clans in the Sambari area by eye - though it doesn't have tribal boundaries-

From west (Wilmskirk) to east and north to south:

Wildcat

Danist Arl

Duroli

Jereni Bird

Jerending

Rokarth

Firebull

Vari

Grey Fox

Squat Oak - not sure whether this is Sambari

As a guide, Jeff drew the tribal boundaries much thicker.

So based on that I defined these pieces of basic information for 1622 ST, in the Great Winter -

Personalizing the Firebull clan of the Sambari tribe  - note COD orlanthi name gen male p.55;p.59 female

 

Located at N end of Stormwalk Mts, S of the Rokarth clan, not on the king’s highway.  Was the core of the Firebull rebellion in 1615-  suppressed harshly – these people have not benefited from the Lunar trade and bear grudges – but were thoroughly beaten. and have suffered from the visitations of the Bat- considered suspect by  the lunars, many were enslaved and exported to Peloria or to Sundome or to Prax.

Chief:  Barnestan.   Air 90%, proud; movement 90%, daring; Mastery 90%, persuasive.  Motivations: to preserve clan in this time of trouble, to cling to power, to recover enslaved clan members.

Personalizing the Rokarth clan of the Sambari tribe

Located along the king’s highway on the border with Balmyr tribe,  E of Wilmskirk, the clan has long profited from the King’s road.   Not sympatheric to ambushes on the road, cowed by Lunar army,

Chief:  Andrinyan.  Air 90%, violent; movement 90% daring; mastery 90% persuasive

Motivations: pride, to cling to power.  Did not participate in rebellion, previous chief was killed.

 

 

Personalizing the Vari clan of the Sambari tribe

Located along the king’s highway farther E of Wilmskirk, the clan has long profited from the King’s road.  Otherwise, small land holding but profitable valley land.

Chief:  Jarkar , Air 90%, proud, inspirational.  Motivations: to lead his clan, preserve them

Personalizing the Jerending clan of the Sambari tribe

Located north of the king’s highway  and of the Stream, S. end of the Quivin mts,

Chief:  Hantristar.   Air 90%, proud, inspirational.  Motivations: to lead his clan, preserve them

 

Grey Fox clan of the Sambari tribe

Located south of the king’s highway and the north end of the Stormwalk mountains, Involved in mining,

Punished by the Lunars after the 1615 rebellion, Some of their land has been taken for the Temple of the Reaching Moon, and many enslaved to build it. 

Chief:  Hantravanth – younger than most chiefs (his predecessor was executed, fed to the Crimson Bat) , his bearing is proud

Air 90%, proud  Motivations: preserve his clan in this time of trouble

 

Squat Oak clan of the Sambari tribe

Located along the king’s highway to the Khleldon border and Goodfork, the clan has long profited from the King’s road.  Visited by the Crimson Bat in 1620.

Chief:  Serenana – long hair elaborately braided piled on top of her head. Tatooed with a green dye, wears a long skirt and an open bodice, exposed breasts.

Earth 90%, pragmatic; Fertilty 90%, protective; harmony 90%, empathetic.

Motivations:enure survival of her people and their way of life.  With the Great winter, supports the warbands

Notes you might find helpful

Jerending

Caroman village

Caroman Pass - Site of the Battle of Caroman 1602 against the invading Lunars (KoS 2ed p117)

Broadview Inn

Orlaront Dragonfriend is from the Jerending (KoS 2ed p200) - one of Kallyr’s Companions (Scout)

Firebull

Firebull village

Crushed by the Lunars under Venharl Venharlson. (Coming Storm)

The decimation of the Sambari Tribe Following the Firebull Moot was carefully calculated by the Lunar Command 1615 (Orlanth is dead)

Barbarian adventures has Roganvarth Loud-Laugh as king of the Sambari  since 1615 (an Issaries cultist). Page 5 has a small sambarri section.

Grey Fox

Grey Fox village

Grey Fox Inn

The RQ companion has Alfgar Whitecloak, chieftain of the Grey Fox in conversation with a man in Backford (page 37)

Squat Oak

Ingan village 

Geos Always open Inn

Cook: Olende Endalsson is from the Squat Oak (KoS 2ed p200) - one of Kallyr’s Companions (Cook)

Vari & Rokarth

Looks like they share Roundstone (tribal centre) 

Sartar:KoH - ... the Sambarri tribe, the cult of Orlanth at Roundstone is defined by the subcult of Hedkoranth. All members of the Roundstone Orlanth cult belong to the Hedkoranth subcult as well.

It's clear to me that that the Roundstone is Great Weighty itself (Book of Heortling Mythology p151)

Looks like Great Weighty is actually the name of the Hedkoranth subcult / spirit cult (see Cults of Sartar)

Roundstone is also a fort on the DP boardgame map.
